Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jayson Tatum is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game after sitting out Monday with an illness. Great news for Tatum and his fantasy managers, who will be able to hopefully salvage a three-game week out of their first-round pick.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo (left knee sprain) practiced on Tuesday and Mike Budenholzer expects him to be listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics. The Greek Freak missed Monday's win over the Pacers, which resulted in Pat Connaughton moving into the first unit with Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton doing the heavy lifting on offense. It'll be more of the same if he's out again tomorrow, but we'll have a better idea where he's at following Wednesday's shootaround. Stay tuned.
